Veloswap is both shops selling excess stock and regular people selling their old stuff. It's huge, you can be in there for a couple of hours no problem. I always find something I need even if I didn't know i needed it. Get your tickets ahead at REI or Performance, it's cheaper and a lot easier.
Ah, good thoughts!
